The camp simulates a classroom environment and provides guided opportunities for children to:
- Interact with new children and adults
- Participate in classroom-like activities such as morning meetings, circle time, show and tell, group creative projects
- Engage in field trips such as to the library or the park
- Play socializing games that promote verbal participation (“brave talking”) and spontaneous speaking
Enrollment is limited and participants are selected through an evaluation conducted by staff. Referrals can be made by school personnel, mental health professionals, physicians or parents.
Costs associated with the camp are based on a sliding scale. During the application and screening process, each parent has an opportunity to meet with a representative who can answer questions concerning financial aspects of the camp.
